This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Final stages

It's been a long time of planning and waiting, preparing and loving.  For the first time, we really feel like we are in the final stages of our pre-parenting life.  From what we understand from a few emails with LIMIAR's staff in Brazil, the last signature of approval that is needed before CEJA can issue a Letter of Invitation is that of a Curitiba judge who happens to be on vacation.  A substitute judge has taken our paperwork home to review our petition and (hopefully) approve our match with the 4 children we've been falling in love with for the last couple months.  It's possible that we'll hear the judge's decision tomorrow.  It's not enough to make us feel like we can exhale yet, so we're still holding our breath for the final word.

In the meantime, we got the boys' room put together and that means pretty everything is ready to welcome home all four sweethearts.

Your bunkbeds look just like ours, too! So excited for you!!!!! Praying you'll be there in a week or two to finally meet them and call them your own.
